Doxepin (3-dibenz [b,e] oxepin - 11(6H)-ylidene-N,N-dimethyl-1-propanamine), a potent H1 histamine antagonist, was labeled with 11C-iodomethane by N-alkylation of normethyldoxepin. The synthesis, purification, and formulation were performed in approximately 20 minutes with an average specific activity of 1630 mCi/μmol (EOS).
